Garage Rebuild

Happy to get my new garage buttoned up for winter, completing the last of the fascia, window caulking, & weather striping. I essentially had the new building envelope finished in August but my punch list was still open to finish the last bits of trim and glazing. Also installed a small HVAC unit. Moving on to the interior work next — electrical, insulation, and cabinetry.

Restricted Diet - Austin Comedy Film Fest

I think this official selection makes for the 8th of the festival run for Restricted Diet. Who knew racist vampires could be so amusing. It screens at Ausin Comedy Short Film Fest, running November 14th and 15th at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline.

Bad Blood: The Movie

Sweet! We got a decent review in the LA Times!

Bad Blood gets a week long run starting Friday the 13th in Passadena. It is also streaming on all On Demand platforms including AT&T U-verse, DirecTV, Comcast Xfinity, Spectrum Cable, Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes. Glad to see this got some decent distribution since its 2016 run of film festivals included wins for Best Feature and for the Score, which can be heard on Spotify.

Grilled Cheese Cat

Leanna Adams plays the funny cat actor in 'Grilled Cheese Cat' screening at the fabulous Y'allywood Film Festival. It's one of the sketches I had the pleasure of doing with Decent Humans back in 2015 and I have one scene it in. The short premiered in June. This month it's showing on the 14th, 7 Stages Theater, during the Comedy Shorts block at 1:30 PM.

Mr. Lockjaw Feature - Dé Ja Vu Table Read

Justin Craig keeps cranking out stories for this sadistic puppet and his psychotic ventrilloquist. His first feature-length story got its table-read 3½ years ago. I'll get to voice his latest one at the end of the month, at the Harp Irish Pub (yay, beer!). In between those, I have really enjoyed playing these two characters in his more "economical" scripts, an hour-long pilot and a half-hour episode. Those garnered several awards at film festivals. Anyway, looking forward to the read and, wistfully, someone to fund more ambitious productions from Justin's sick and tormented soul.

Residential Architecture

Remodeling

Filed under "Task cascade". The new garage cladding I finished in August looked so good that it made me hate the 16-year-old white vinyl sidding on the back of my house — I had to refinish the house to match.

This month I finished the first floor and also resurfaced the 200 sq. ft. balcony. The balcony railings are still left to do, but I already love how my backyard "compound" is coming together.

Bad Blood the Movie

New artwork and release date announced for Bad Blood. The movie will be available starting Friday, October 13th, a “Day-and-Date” release in select theatres and all On Demand platforms. I like the new poster design. There've been at least 4 designs since rehearsals back in September 2014, and this will probably perform best in online thumbnail galleries. And, after a year of post-production, a year playing film fests, and 15 months since the distribution rights were sold, it's sweet to finally be looking forward to having my DVD copy of the film.

Restricted Diet - Tampa Film Fest

The festival run for Restricted Diet continues. It screens at The Halloween Horror Picture Show in Tampa, FL which runs the last weekend in September.

Coma Girl - Direct TV

Insomniacs, the Coma Girl short plays on DirectTV, 3:43am Sat Sept 30. Channel 573. You can see me play a mean 3rd wheel to Neil Ramsay and Amber Seidel. It is one of the segements in the Horror Hotel The Movie, free to watch on Amazon Prime
